In business contracts, we are formally known as Research St. Joseph's – Hamilton (RSJ–H or RSJH).

In everyday use and on social media, we use the name The Research Institute of St. Joe's Hamilton, The Research Institute of St. Joe's, or simply The Research Institute, depending on the context. Note that only our formal business name uses "Joseph's," whereas all other forms use "Joe's."

Variations that mix naming elements of RSJH and St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton are not correct.

Our Logos

The words “The Research Institute of St. Joe's Hamilton” appear in white text overtop a green square, with the upper left and lower right corners rounded, comprise The Research Institute’s logo. This image depicts the primary green version of the logo, as well as an all-white variant

The Research Institute's logo is comprised of the words "The Research Institute of St. Joe's Hamilton" in white over a green square with the upper left and lower right corners rounded. Our logo is available as a PNG file in two different sizes and colour variants, as well as a vectorized EPS file. Unless you require the logo for a print design, it is recommended to use the PNG.

Dual Logo

The logo of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and the logo of The Research Institute of St. Joe’s Hamilton appear side by side in this dual logo design. The image depicts the full colour variant as well as the all-white variant.

Often, there are situations where there is a need to showcase both the clinical and research aspects of our organization by using the dual logo lockup. This lockup contains the logo of St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton next to, and in proportion with, the logo for The Research Institute. This version is available as a PNG file in two colour variants.

Logo Usage

  • Do not alter, add, or remove any elements of the logo.
  • Do not change the aspect, typeface, colours, or proportions of the logo.
  • Avoid using cluttered or busy backgrounds.
  • Try to keep some white space between the logo and any others, as well as the edges of your design or other elements.
  • Ensure there is enough contrast with the background colour when using the white logo variants.

The five research pillar icons are depicted in a row, representing the wide gamut of research at St. Joe’s. The icons that represent each of the five research pillars contain a white symbol over a colour-themed circle. There are versions with and without an outer ring of text that contains the name of the pillar. When the five pillars are presented together, they should always appear in the same order:

  1. Mental Health & Addiction
  2. Lungs & Chest
  3. Father Sean O'Sullivan Research Centre
  4. Kidney
  5. Genitourinary

The exact colour codes are presented below. Many software applications, such as Microsoft PowerPoint, have a colour picker or eyedropper tool that can be used to copy the colour from the logo images. These are less exact but will be sufficient for almost all cases. These colour codes are built-in to the RSJH PowerPoint Template.

Note: Web colour codes contain letters A-F and numbers 0-9 only.
